On going problem with ML430
Okay everyone i know youve probably seen this post a lot but i have a serious situation and before i start going to spend more money and time i have a few questions about this 430 headache.
6 months ago the inlaw bought this truck (bad mistake), i pushed him not too due to all the horror stories about them but guess what, he bought it for his wife. 3 months later he has a problem with it where when hot it shuts down and cant start it back up. being a tech i automatically assume the crank sensor, replaced it. 3 months later the inlaw goes grocery shopping car dies out on the middle of the road she said she was pushing the throttle but no response, car inop. So i get it towed let it cool and nothing. Wait a day go to start, runs for a second then dies. Getting fuel cause i flooded the cylinders "oooops", checked spark and its good, it cranks but just wont start. Now my questions are these
-Can that cps really go bad after 3 months cause they really look cheap
-I noticed the key is kinda worn and they only have one key. theyre automatic doorlocks stopped working a while ago, could the no start be related to the theft system.
-I replaced bank 1 cat converter cause it was faulty, but then had evap codes shortly after and it wasnt due to loose gas cap or faulty gas cap cause i tried with another of the same model that i got from wreckers. If there is a problem with the evap system will this cause a no start.
-Can someone help me here before i get it towed into a lake, i just want to get it running cause now they want to get rid of it.
